So last week, I read Psalm 147. Verse 10 & 11 say the following:
His delight is not in the strength of the horse, nor His pleasure in the legs of man, but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His steadfast love.
For whatever reason, these two verses became "living and active." Specifically, verse 11 where it specifically tells us what the Lord takes pleasure in.
So it begs a question to me - is it possible do one and not the other? Can a person fear the Lord in a way the pleases Him and not hope in His steadfast love? Or can we hope in His steadfast love and not have a healthy fear of Him?
How do we demonstrate these two elements of the Christian life? Are they inseparably linked together?
On a side note - per the request of my encouraging sister-in-law, here is a picture of Uncle Todd and Landon:
